University of Kent philanthropy expert wins European award

A philanthropy expert at the University of Kent – Dr Beth Breeze – has won a European award for a joint study exploring employee engagement in corporate philanthropy.

Dr Breeze is the Director of the University of Kent’s Centre for Philanthropy. She won the European Research Network on Philanthropy (ERNOP) best conference paper award for a paper she co-wrote with Dr Pamala Wiepking from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) in the Netherlands.

The paper was entitled Different Drivers: Exploring Employee Engagement in Corporate Philanthropy, and had recommendations for the managers of businesses and fundraising organisations, advising that ‘truly strategic corporate philanthropy should involve both business leaders and employee representatives in democratised and devolved corporate philanthropy decision-making to maximise the business benefits of corporate philanthropy that incorporates both strategic goals and human resource management benefits’.

The award was sponsored by Transnational Giving Europe and included a €1,000 cash prize.
